JUDY SHEPARD'S POWERFUL WORDS ON HOMO HATE CRIMES

We just passed the Hate Crimes Bill in the House, but there is still the Senate to urge into action. Watch this touching video plea from a woman whose son was bludgeoned to death and if you feel moved, or just want to penalize someone who wants to kick your ass because of who and what you are, I urge you to contact your representative. The info is below.



The scare tactics continue. Anti-LGBT groups sent lawmakers a note linking to a poster of Jesus that says "WANTED For Violation of the Proposed Hate Crimes Law In His Teachings."

THE LATE MATTHEW SHEPARD



Our only defense is the truth: in the ten years since Matthew Shepard's death, tens of thousands more people have been violently attacked for being who they are. It took ten years of lobbying and educating to get to this point – our long wait for hate crimes protections must end now.

Ten friends of yours can help. Send the video to ten friends now!

Here's a sample message you can use:

Hi,

I just watched a really powerful online video that I think you should see. Judy Shepard talks about losing her son Matthew to anti-gay hate violence and her ten-year fight for a federal hate crimes law that would honor his memory.
The House just passed the bill and we need the Senate to act soon. The right wing is spreading absurd lies, claiming it would send pastors to jail for giving anti-gay sermons. We need to fight back with the truth, and we don't have much time.

Please watch the video, write your senators, and then forward this email to ten of your friends.

Thank you so much for your commitment. I hope you'll keep up your amazing work, and help us urge the Senate to take quick action and get the bill to the president's desk.

EVEN MORE IMPORTANT THAN WATCHING AND FORWARDING THE VIDEO, CONTACT YOUR SENATORS WHO WILL VOTE ON THIS SHORTLY. NOTHING LET'S THEM KNOW HOW PASSIONATE YOU ARE ABOUT THIS HATE CRIMES BILL UNLESS YOU CONTACT THEM WITH YOUR DEMANDS. REMEMBER--WE ARE THEIR BOSSES AND WE HIRE AND FIRE THEM VIA ELECTIONS. THAT'S WHAT DEMOCRACY IS. I just heard on the news that "Banks own the senate." Well, they don't own my fucking vote!

DON'T SLEEP ON THIS--WHETHER YOU ARE GAY OR A STRAIGHT PERSON WHO DOESN'T LIKE TO SEE HATE CRIMES GO UNPUNISHED. THE VOTE GOES BEFORE THE SENATE WITHIN A FEW DAYS!
